8 Mile – Trailer

8 Mile is a 2002 American hip-hop drama film, directed by Curtis Hanson and starring Eminem, Kim Basinger, Brittany Murphy and Mekhi Phifer.

The film is an account of a young rapper named Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith Jr. (Eminem) growing up in a poor area of 1995 Detroit as he struggles for respect among his (mostly black) peers. Contrary to popular belief, this movie does not detail Eminem’s life growing up in Detroit, but instead, the average life of a rapper in Detroit, as stated by Eminem in interviews about the movie. Despite this, the movie is considered to be semi-autobiographical.

The film was a financial success, was well received critically, and won an Academy Award for the Best Original Song for Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”, becoming the first rap song in a movie to win an Academy Award.
